FREE Tools to Help You Through 'Stay Home' Orders

In this time of COVID-19 we’ve all received tons of emails from businesses offering ‘tips’ to manage the crisis that are merely sales pitches in disguise. But there is very little on how to deal with the anxiety that comes with daily changes and restrictions. As a gift to you, I have put together an extensive list of mindfulness practices and a 50-minute Qigong practice to help you manage this stress – no sales pitch, no strings attached.

With social isolation and news of COVID-19 changing daily, it may seem like our lives have been put on hold and we have no control over our daily lives. While we can’t control the virus spread and mandates, we DO have control over ourselves and how we respond to the daily changes. Besides what the CDC recommends to protect ourselves and our loved ones, there are MANY things we can do to lower the anxiety and take back our sense of personal control and well-being.

Feeling better within ourselves is especially critical at this time, because chronic anxiety is stress, and chronic stress without some sort of healthy outlet and balance will compromise the immune system – just what none of us needs right now. Chronic stress can affect all of our physical, emotional, spiritual, and energetic systems, leading to fatigue, insomnia, headaches, digestive problems, and depression.

While I can no longer teach in-person classes, I would like to offer you what I can. So I share with you some helpful mindfulness and Qigong tactics to reduce anxiety and boost the immune system, particularly the lungs. All are beginner-level exercises, and can be done in standing or seated positions. 

If you’re not familiar with Qigong, it’s an ancient Chinese practice, born out of Traditional Chinese Medicine. Through all these centuries, it has been proven as a terrific self-help tool. Indeed, modern scientific studies are now backing up what Qigong practitioners have always known – it works on many levels. Even doctors and nurses in hospitals in Wuhan are leading quarantined patients through Qigong exercises!

You can access my extensive list of immune-protective tactics and Qigong to help yourself
here:  https://www.moveintomindfulness.com/mindfulness-and-qigong-for-covid-19/. I hope you find tools that appeal to you, and most importantly, encourage you to just DO something, even if it’s just one thing. Take back control of your inner landscape. Qigong will help you do that. Even those who say they can’t meditate because of the ‘monkey mind’ can practice Qigong to quiet the mind, bring the stress energy down, and sleep better.
